MIDEM Cannes Yacht Charter Information
MIDEM short for Marché International du Disque et de Edition Musicale is the largest music industry trade fair, which is held yearly at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France, since 1967, usually in the month of January. It brings together musicians, businesspeople, cultural policy makers and journalists from around 90 countries. It provides a forum for business talks, discussing political and legal issues and showcasing new artists, musical trends and music-related products. MIDEM is considered primarily to be a marketplace, therefore the artists present are those who either have an enterprise of their own, or have been invited to promote companies. MIDEM also acts as a venue for several awards ceremonies: the MIDEM Classical Awards (since 2005) and the NRJ Music Awards (since 2000), where French radio station NRJ welcomes the world’s biggest pop stars to the Palais des Festivals the night before MIDEM begins.
While enjoying the show the MIDEM show you can charter a yacht to entertain your clients and sail the surrounding areas. There are several ways to charter a yacht for the MIDEM show:
You can charter a luxury yacht for entertainment and it is also the best way to show off your enterprise as it gives you the perfect venue to promote your company. During the day, the yacht can act as a floating office & conference venue in the heart of Cannes allowing you to welcome clients on board for meetings & presentations while in the evening, the yacht makes an impressive venue for cocktail parties & dinners. And at night, your luxury yacht becomes your own private 5 star hotel.
There is also yacht charter for special events. If you want to host a lavish reception for your customers, you can charter a larger sailing or motor yacht for the day or evening. There are also some beautiful yachts ideally suited for cocktail receptions and parties because of their vast deck space and all the technical expertise for on board entertainment.
A yacht charter for accommodation, sailing boat or motor boat offers a new and practical alternative to finding a hotel since Cannes hotels are usually booked up every year as early as six months prior to the MIDEM and guests are then forced to commute from Nice or elsewhere, wasting precious time in traffic. Chartering a yacht puts you right in the middle of the show and provides the perfect venue for hosting meetings. You can stay in the Old Port, next to the Palais, or in Port Canto just to the east of the Croisette, next to the Casino and some of the most exclusive night clubs in Cannes.
While attending the Cannes MIDEM you can easily charter a boat for just a day. This is a great way to entertain your special clients and get to see the region from the water. Cannes is ideally situated between Monaco and St Tropez which makes it easy to cruise to either destination in a short period of time. The day cruises will be ideal for these getaways.
